Class 10 and 12 examinations were deferred after the cancellation of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) Class 10 exams and the postponement of class 12 examinations. Several states either canceled or postponed the board exams for the class 10 and 12 students after the central government announced its decision about the exams.
Uttar Pradesh Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad (UPMSP) had issued the changed schedule for the class 10 and 12 board exams. According to the revised date sheet issued by the UPMSP, the exams were scheduled to be held from May 8 and May 28, 2021. Initially, the board had decided to start examinations in April but it was postponed due to rising cases of the coronavirus across the country.
